Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s coming of age novel, Purple Hibiscus, allegorically documents Nigeria’s political history in the late nineties, which accounts for the relevance of women’s struggle. In this article, two of Gérard Genette’s key intertextual relations...

Six fungicides namely tilt (propioconazole), OPUS (epoxiconazole), Calixin (tridemorph), Indofil                         M-45(mancozeb), Blitox-50 (Cupper oxychloride) and Bavistin (Carbendazim) were evaluated against Sclerotium rolfsii causing collar rot of tube rose. At one hour of dipping of sclerotia in propioconazole significantly reduced the germination of sclerotia (26.7%). Carbendazim affected the germination but mancozeb could not reduce the germination. In in...

ABSTRACT Planning and scheduling are important task in construction projects. In this project comparison of two commonly used programs, i.e., Primavera software and Microsoft (MS) Project, was undertaken. For planning and scheduling work huge amount of paperwork is required, which makes the management very burdensome These problems can be solved using a project management software which helps to give a planned approach to planning. This analysis was done because of their comparable technical...

Self Compacting Concrete may be defined as a flowing concrete that can be cast into place without the use of vibrators to form a product free of honeycombs and bugholes. Metakaolin   is a   dehydroxylated   form of the clay mineral   kaolinite . Stone that are rich in kaolinite are known as china clay or kaolin, traditionally used in the manufacture of   porcelain . The particle size of metakaolin is smaller than   cement particles, but not as fine as   silica fume . Silica Fume or...

Fusarium udum Butler is an important soil borne pathogenic fungi causing wilt disease in pigeonpea. The disease is predominant in all major pigeonpea growing areas throughout the world, and causes 30-100% yield loss, where resistance sources are not available. The seedling stage is more prone to wilt infection, but the visible symptoms mostly appear at different growth stages of host plants based on the severity of infection. Though a number of well accepted techniques are available for...

An experimental analysis of phase locked loop (PLL) circuit has been carried out in order to build and test a simple PLL circuit, determine the lock and capture ranges for a PLL circuit with a traditional XOR phase/frequency comparator, lock and capture ranges for a PLL circuit with sampling type/ frequency comparator and to observe the phase relationship between the input and output waveforms for two common types of phase/frequency detectors. This will enable us ascertain the low power...

The cyanobacteria are an ancient group of prokaryotic organisms that are found all over the world in environments as diverse as Antarctic soils and volcanic hot springs, and often where no other vegetation can exist. Being prokaryotes they share with others of their type the lack of a nucleus and a laminated extracellular wall. Unlike photosynthetic bacteria however, cyanobacteria possess chlorophyll-a in common with photosynthetic eukaryotes, and they liberate oxygen during photosynthesis....

As the technology keeps on growing day by da, it helps in the development of our nation, but at the same time it damages our surrounding environment too. Concrete, which is the most important construction material, has some limited properties such as low tensile strength, low ductility and shrinkage and cracking problem related to hardening. These problems related to concrete can be tackled. To neutralize the problem related to low tensile strength, some material like steel fiber can be added...
